All About Travelling to South Africa

South Africa… famous for hosting the 2010 World Cup, the country is known to differ greatly from most of its African counterparts. Renowned for its wine and the status as the world’s largest producer of gold, South Africa is rather advanced in its social, economical, and political development. Travelling to South Africa is not only uniquely rewarding, but relatively safe and reassuring in comparison to most of the other parts of Africa. However, purchasing relevant travel insurance cover such as loss-of-valuables cover and medical cover will prove beneficial to protect your trip to South Africa.

South Africa is a paradise for anyone interested in natural history. A wide range of species (some potentially dangerous) may be encountered in parks, farms, private reserves and even on the roads. The Kruger National Park, The Kgalagadi National Park, and Addo Elephant National Park are famous destinations for wandering outdoor fans, among other UNESCO World Heritage sites such as The Cradle of The Humankind in Johannesburg.

South Africa has some of the highest violent crime rates in the world, but, by being vigilant and using common sense, you should have a safe and pleasant trip as hundreds of thousands of other people have each year. The key is to know and stick to general safety precautions: never walk around in deserted areas at night or advertise possession of money and expensive accessories. Don’t worry too much about your South African Trip when you have purchased a relevant travel insurance package. It will protect you from urban crimes and possible accidents from outdoor safaris or animal attacks!
